    Roman Catholics and Protestants ?

    it is known that the Roman catholics follow the bible which has 76 books in it and the protestants follow 63 books that complete their bible ........... so my question is which one of u has the right book ............ considering there is only one WORD OF GOD !

    According to who? Jewish people don't believe in the New Testament Yet read the Bible. Muslims, like yourself, don't. They read the Quaran....Etc. Who says there is only One Word of God?? What ever makes you happy to believe in is what you should believe in. Who cares what everyone else does?

    The extra books don't interact with the 66 books that's why they were left out in the so called Protestants and they weren't added until a few hundred years ago.

    Actually Mormons consider 4 books as their scripture: Bible, Book of Mormon, Doctrine and Covenants, and Pearl of Great Price.

    The main difference between “Protestant” and Catholic Bibles is what books are in there, are counted as being normative for the faith and officially sacred Scripture, part of the “canon”. Books that are similar in content, form, or title but are not considered to be part of sacred Scripture are called “apocryphal” (for example, the Assumption of Moses, or the Gospel of Thomas). Catholic Bibles will always contain what we call the deuterocanonical books. Catholics consider these to be canonical—part of the canon—while (most) Protestants do not. They would consider them to be apocryphal. The deuterocanonical books are: Tobit, Judith, 1 & 2 Maccabees, Wisdom (of Solomon), Ecclesiasticus (Ben Sira, or Sirach), and Baruch. Moreover, Esther and Daniel contain deuterocanonical portions

    Since there is no clergy in the Christian Science church, they regard their founder's (Mary Baker Eddy) book, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures," as their "Pastor" (that's what their official web site says, anyway). That book has significance approaching the Bible itself with those folks . . .

    The name Christian Science is an oxymoron any way. There is nothing scientific about being a Christian.
